    Server work on Thursday, July 18th

    On Thursday, July 18th, I'll be doing some maintenance on our server. This may include the addition of encryption (HTTPS) -- I still need more info from tech support before I make that decision. I may need to take the server offline for short periods of time. Or I may screw everything up leaving us offline for hours. You may notice the server is down, or you may not notice a thing. I've spoken with contest volunteers and have been told that although there is no perfect time to do this, Thursday the 18th, would be the least terrible day to crash the server.

    If you participate in the Prediction Challenge, be sure to take this maintenance window into account when planning to make your picks.
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    Is that in the morning of the 18th, or evening?
    Thanks for the medal Johanna!

    I'll probably get going in the morning. But if there's a problem, which I don't anticipate, it could go past the afternoon and into the evening before I get it fixed. Although it's very unlikely that would happen. My guess is I'll be done by early afternoon (PST).

    The update is done and everything seems to be fine. We were down for about an hour while the update was being installed but should be back to normal now.

    I've decided to not open the "https" can of worms at this time. Maybe at some point down the road.

    Thank you to our contest peeps for helping me nail down the best time to do this. I appreciate everything you all do for TAT!
